August 18, 2014

Steve Stone Steve Stone

“BETWEEN WOOD AND WATER documents the restoration and history of Canada’s oldest functioning sailboat, Dorothy, a lovely, lucky sailboat who has fired the hearts and imaginations of British Columbians for well over a century. From the moment she slipped into the waters of Victoria’s inner harbour in 1897, the 30-ft wooden sloop, with her beautiful shape and heartbreakingly pure lines, excited attention wherever she went. Now, her contemporary restoration by shipwright and marine artist Tony Grove for the Maritime Museum of B.C. culminates in Dorothy‘s re-launch next fall in her home waters at the 2015 Victoria Classic Boat Festival and Race – a fitting and dramatic finale for the film, as the 117-year old boat contends for her title as the oldest and fastest little wooden ship in the west!”
